    About this deal

    Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell's nightmarish vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff's attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life—the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language—and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written.



    Review "My favourite book is 1984 . . . More relevant to today than almost any other book that you can think of" (Jo Brand)

    "His final masterpiece . . . enthralling and indispensable for understanding modern history" (New York Review of Books)

    "The book of the twentieth century . . . haunts us with an ever-darker relevance" (Independent)

    "Orwell remains the most indispensable English writer of his period" (Observer)

    "One of the most influential English writers of the twentieth century" (Robert McCrum Observer)

    "Many writers and journalists have tried to imitate his particular kind of clarity without possessing anything like his moral authority" (Peter Ackroyd The Times)

    "Matchlessly sharp and fresh . . . The clearest and most compelling English prose style this century" (John Carey Sunday Times)

    "Orwell's innocent eye was often devastatingly perceptive . . . a man who looked at his world with wonder and wrote down exactly what he saw, in admirable prose" (Evening Standard)
